Just when Jaipurites were thinking that the city has started settling on a new food complex ie Masala Chowk at Ram Niwas Garden that hosts in itself a variety of dishes, there came “Modern Chowpatty” which is now the talk of the town.
Call it Choupati or Chow-patty, it serves the same purpose as it’s counterpart, just in a much-sophisticated way as well as with a fresh outlook.
People not only just come here to soak in the beauty of the natural and fresh air, but also to enjoy the lip-smacking snacks that are served here. The food stalls at the Modern Chowpatty serve a variety of vegetarian delights.
From Rawat ki Kachori, Chaap from Delhi, Chatpati Kolkatta Chaat, Thai, Mexican and Lebanese cuisines to tea, ice cream, juices, shakes everything is right here.
A haven for vegetarians, this place houses 15 renowned brands from around the city which include the likes of –
Rawat Mishthan Bhandar
Shree Gopi Pavitra Bhojnalaya
Tea Tradition Xpress
House Of Delicacies
Krishna Live Ice cream
Kalkatti Chat Bhandar
Just like any other place which is in its new days, The Modern Chowpatty also is less crowded and this makes one’s meal worthwhile due to the less disturbance along with fast servicing. The rate at which it’s gaining ground from people around the city is phenomenal and has been getting a decent amount of footfall after the evening.
But what catches our attention is its dining area. The unique circular shaped dining areas are something that we have never seen and experienced in Jaipur. The Modern Chowpatty works on cashless basis i.e get your royal pass issued and you will be free from cash payments on every stall individually.
We know right, we are on the same page on this one. Like every other year, this year has to be the same on the relationship status part, but like every other year, this year you don’t have to crib about it or be bored.
Note: We assume all of your friends are committed, just like ours’ and won’t even pick your call. This guide is basically things you can doalone , while the indoor guide is for everyone around the world, outdoor guides sticks to specifically to Jaipur.
Now, we wouldn’t want you to rely completely on going out, because you know at almost every place in and around Jaipur you will find people (especially couples), and we know deep down, we are all introverts (and jealous 🙃). So, we have compiled a list which includes both indoor and outdoor things you can do, this Valentine’s day in Jaipur.
Some things you can do staying in the house or simply anywhere you want:
3 things to binge on Netflix.
1. Wild Wild Country: The documentary is a story revolving around of the most influential people the world has ever had, Osho. The documentary may have not won many awards, but it’s sure to rule your heart for days. There are just 6 episodes which can easily be completed in one go. The show starts slow but as things reveal, well you will have to watch to know.
2. Gerald’s Game: This movie, remains one the best adaptations of Stephen King’sbooks. We are sorry we can’t tell you anything more, we suggest don’t even watch the trailer, just dive into it.
3. Black mirror: Black mirror is an anthology series. Every episode is a feast (not like an actual ‘feast’, but you’ll know 🤐). There are 4 seasons with a total of 19 episodes. Same advice, don’t even think about watching the trailers. As it’s an anthology, you can watch any of the seasons or episodes first, so we leave that up to you. Just remember one thing, each episode is way different from the others, so if an episode disappoints ‘ahem’ you, you don’t need to worry.
Bonus: Black mirror just released a movie called Bandersnatch, it’s different from the episodes and series as a whole, but it’s surely one of a kind experience, it’s a choose your own path movie, and definitely worth watching.
3 places to eat in Jaipur
Now, before we begin, we are not sure if you are comfortable going out and eating alone, for that stance, all these places deliver (swiggy, uber eats, and zomato FTW!) at your home.
1. Meraaki Kitchen: This place literally serves heavenly food (also, beer 😉) and really does happen to be one of our favorite places to eat in Jaipur.
2. Masala Ministry: The is the place you can literally go to, whenever you are craving good food. Masala Ministry is celebrity chef Jiggs Kalra’s restaurant and has just opened a second branch in Jaipur. The restaurant doesn’t serve any form of alcohol, but the taste of food will go you on the 9th cloud.
3. Little Italy: The only authentic Italian place in the entire city, Little Italy must be many of yours’ favorite already. If you haven’t already tried the Alfredo sauce based pizza, we insist you do. The place doesn’t have a match in taste and has a great beer and wine menu to choose from.
3 artists to explore (Caution: Please stop crying, we didn’t mean to hurt you 😰)
Note: We are not including our favorite numbers from them, so you will have to spend the day to find out the best ones.
3 places to have a serene experience in Jaipur
Note: Definitely take your camera along.
1. The mountain behind Samode palace: The place just speaks to your soul, it’s a hard walk of over 800 steep steps and you will probably spend the day climbing it. There is a different kind of serenity at the top of the mountain, especially after you so much trouble getting up there.
2. Dumping yard (Sambhar Lake): The place makes up for an absolute best long drive around Jaipur, there’s also a lovely McDonald’s on Ajmer highway now. You won’t even have the time to think about your Ex or your future. ‘LOL’
3. Chandlai lake: The place makes for an amazing peaceful time if of course, it’s not flooded with couples already. The place is moderately far and doesn’t really have anything special close by, but if you’re lucky and there are no couples around, you can bring home a nice and serene experience.
Remember a month ago we introduced to you a new paradise for party lovers in the city –Club Trove. A place that offers a scintillating upscale nightclub experience to Jaipurites.
And now we are all set for a food and drinks review for you guys. Cause we know when we go out to party or to meet friends or to celebrate the only thing that matters the most is Food and Drinks. Right?
So, here we are!! Jaipur Beat giving the first hand review of trove rooftop café where one can simply indulge into the delights of Sundowners accompanied with scrumptious veg non veg starters whist listening to soothing live music. For those who are into serious clubbing they have a separate Club section where you must try the signature cocktails and veg –non veg finger food.
An exciting, and astonishingly well-designed club, Trove happens to set it just right in terms of space and ambiance. The lights are amazingly placed and it’s one of the first such concept we have seen in Jaipur. We just loved the chandelier made out of the same lights (note: filter applied b&w). The sound system is good with a balanced amount of bass, it’s certainly not ears cracking, and excellently balanced for you to dance the night away.
The ambiance is a bit different from what we are used to, the wooden walls, the asymmetrical wooden edges on the tables, the hanging seats, all add up to a great experience. The café is dimly lit, and you may have to stress your eyes a bit, on the other hand, there were ample heaters to keep you warm in chilly winters. The restaurant is on the ground floor, technically attached to the club, and, there is a beautiful garden attached to it too. The restaurant may end up being blasted by music as the club’s wall were not really ‘sound proof’.
A well-stocked bar is a plus for Trove, with the drinks happens to be served at all three spaces. The mock tails have a nice twist to them, and tastes good, while, it’s the cocktails, that shines brighter. The twist to cocktails makes them exclusive to Trove and they look so so good, all while tasting so amazing. The servers were nice and friendly and sure knew their stuff.
The menu is sure ain’t short on options, which is a mix of Oriental, Asian, East Indian, and what not, it does seem like they tried to row too many boats at once. But they surely managed really well, and of course, didn’t drown. Even the menu is huge, everything we tasted, has that authentic taste while having a different touch, which seemingly, you wouldn’t find anywhere else.
We tried Japaneese noodle salad, Hommos Jaipur way, pattal chaat, Corn water chestnut bag, and the Hommos Jaipur way and in non veg options steamed curry chicken momos was the highlight.
Kebabs & grill
They have some tantalizing options from their Kebabs & grill section- Ultimate Chicken Satay, Kurdish mutton kebab and Charmole sole fish skewer.
Pizza Lovers- Uncle Jack, Pepperonata, smoked chicken and salumi must try. Yes we tried a bite from each one of these.
Though we were almost full but looking at their preparations we don’t want to miss the dinner, which we planned to have at the rooftop café. After a bit of dancing and clubbing we were back for the final course 😀
We have never imagined that we will soon be trying the cuisines from the entire world in our platter but here it was- Indonesian Manchurian curry, Wild mushroom malaka curry, Burmeese Khao suey feats, Andhra bitter melon curry, khatti dal kurkuri bhindi, malai kofta curry.
Hold on this was just vegetarian section!!
In Non- veg- Malaysian mutton curry, Singapore fish curry, tollyygunge egg curry, Awadhi chicken biryani and GT road chicken curry, could easily guess that Chef has actually covered entire Grand Trunk road to discover such amazing cuisines. We’re truly glad!!
Making this very clear to all our fans, no matter how much you have already eaten, you’ve to make some space for the ultimate desserts. Missing those will be counted as a Sin. If not all, you must try Date almond cigar with pan mousse and cannoli baked yogurt.
So, if you actually want to indulge in world class cuisines whilst enjoying world class ambience and experience , think no more and head to Trove café!!
Address- Devraj Niwas, Bani Park, Near Khasa Kothi
It doesn’t matter if you are on a night out, or if it’s simply on your bucket list, or even if, you just want to eat something good, regardless, it being the nighttime in all its glory. In this list of restaurants, we’ve got you all covered. Except for Jaipur Pavilion, every other restaurant/cafe in the list opens 24 hours.
Zolocrust, Clarks Amer, Malviya Nagar

24/7, Lalit, Malviya Nagar
It’s in a class of its own, and, let us assure you, Lalit, Jaipur is known for its hospitality, no matter the time of the day it is. 24/7 offers one of the widest varieties of cuisines in our list, so think of any dish you like, and you will probably get it here. Oh, and did we forget, the whole bar menu is on offer too, 24/7.
Jaipur Pavilion, ITC Rajputana, Palace Road
(10:00-02:00 weekdays, 10:00-03:00 on weekends)
Craving laal maas in the middle of the night?
Don’t worry, we have been there too. Jaipur Pavilion is widely praised for its authentic laal maas, but if you want to try something else, be assured you won’t be disappointed.
P.S: We have heard a lot of praise about their oriental dishes too.
Jal Mahal, Trident, Jaipur
Looking for an early breakfast, or some great coffee?
You won’t have to go too far. Jal Mahal, Trident, offers a great menu, to begin with, but apart from its regular lavish buffets, it happens to include a coffee shop too. Did we tell you how great the sunrise looks standing beside the Jal Mahal lake?
So, you have got one of the best coffee there is, in Jaipur, at one of the best places you can watch the sun rise. Tell us of a better package, we will wait.
